Ms. Schwartz, I ate cornflakes outta my bowl
Thursday, December 17, 2009
We've been working in ceramics in my classes - Thug Boy #2 came in yesterday and told me he ate his cornflakes from the ultramarine blue bowl he made. I haven't seen this kid happy or excited about anything, unless he's bothering or threatening someone else. He's 15 yrs old, repeating 7th grade, and has a police record.
But he made a nice bowl and cup, they glazed nicely, and he was happy to eat from his bowl. Maybe there's hope for him. All I can do is keep trying.
